Verve Anni-Verve-Sary Blog Hop!


Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!

Now on with my show! I made this card for my SIL Jen. Here is a close up of all the little gems I used:
STUFF I USED TO MAKE THIS CARD:
STAMPS: {Verve} Because of You
INK: SU Basic Black
PAPER: My Minds Eye
ACCESSORIES: Rhinestones and Mini Rhinestone Gems, Fiskars Border Punch, Ribbon

My second card was just made for fun. I think I gave it to my mom to give to whomever she desired!

INK: SU Basic Black
PAPER: the Paper Company, My Mind's Eye (Simple Delight)
